Motorola refreshes Razr ahead of wider release

Motorola on Wednesday revealed that it has refreshed its foldable Razr phone. Not only does it have upgraded specifications, but it has a modified design, too.

The Motorola Razr largely maintains the same general design, but its frame is now constructed from 7000 series aluminum. The predecessor, for its part, was built with stainless steel.

The hinge has been adjusted to include slightly more enclosed gears and is reportedly rated for up to 200,000 flips. Moreover, the phone is more sleek thanks to a curved Gorilla Glass 5 front.

Among the more noticeable changes are the moving of the fingerprint reader to the rear. This allows for Motorola to thin down the chin a bit.

In terms of specification changes, the Motorola Razr picks up 5G connectivity, better cameras, and a larger battery. Likewise, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, 8GB RAM, and 256GB storage.

The new Motorola Razr will be offered by both AT&T and T-Mobile and will retail for $1,400. In addition to the carrier support, it will also be sold unlocked at motorola.com, Best Buy, B&H Photo, and Amazon.

Set to launch in Blush Gold, Polished Graphite, and Liquid Mercury, the exact timing  of its availability is unclear.
